. they won't let them go to the u.n. and declare statehood. they won't let them govern their own territory in the west bank. the wall that has been constructed and the roadblocks and checkpoints that exist in the settlements that are expand having undercut the legitimacy of that leadership. so what we have got is a situation that only gets worse and that's why the united states has to take a tougher stand. that's why we have to have those who can talk to the folks in hamas and gaza take a tougher position and ultimately bring an end to this. >> that's going to be the last word on that, mr. zogby. >> we're going to go down that road, open the door to hell, we saw it play out before in 2008 and '06 and many times before and ben wedeman is right, all we get is a lot of dead people and we start right back where we were with no peace and people still needing to talk to each other. >> james zogby, president of the arab-american institute. thank you for your time, sir. >>> back to the united states. we have a story developing now. two people now, two people are missing and two people are believed
on some of this, because you've gone after very hard ambassador rice. the u.n. ambassador. she has maintained a position of acting in good faith on cia intelligence briefings. that is what led her to say what she said on the morning television show on that sunday. mortars and rocket propelled grenades and heavy weapons to demonstrations. >> right. i want to play you a clip. this is condoleezza rice, who was talking on fox news about benghazi in october. listen to this. >> when there is a fog of war like this, there are a lot of competing stories coming in, there's a lot of competing information coming in and it takes a little while to know precisely what has happened. there are protocols in place. i have no reason to believe that they weren't followed. but it is not very easy in circumstances like this to know precisely what's going on as it's unfolding. >> isn't that, with respect, senator, sort of a fairer assessment of dr. rice's position, the other dr. rice, susan rice, in the sense there was a fog of war, the cia were clearly passing on what has now transpired to be inaccurate
for that. the u.n.'s nuclear agency says iran is poised to double output of enriched uranium that could be used in a nuclear warhead. the report says that iran will be technically ready within days that ramp up production of enriched uranium at one facility, cut in half the time it takes to make enough to fuel a bomb. iran denies any interest in nuclear weapons. here at home, we're now about a month and a half away from the fiscal cliff, the massive tax hikes and spending cuts that threaten to push the economy back into recession. lawmakers in washington met with the president today in a first step to try to find a way back from the abyss. chief washington correspondent james rosen tells us how it went. >> with that, we're going to get to work. >> the president hosting leaders from both parties and chambers of congress at the roosevelt room and appears to be sticking to his guns on taxes for higher income earningsers, own obliquely reining in entitlement spending. >> my hope is this going to be the beginning of a fruitful process where we're able to come to an agreement that will reduce
be sued arming the rebels, but the u.n. embargo will have to be lifted first. the aim? tipping the balance against president assad. the signals today could hardly be clearer. this seemed to be itching to announce formal recognition of the new opposition coalition if the president can be brought down. >> they represent about 90% of the forces on the ground. we are in dialogue with other opposition forces of the coalition. i think the british and international community recognizes the presentation the coalition has. >> still, the crisis in serial worsens by the day. these refugees are risking heading home again, partly in fear of what without adequateutg opposition rebels to grow stronger. >>> another sign of the changes in the middle east, clashes have broken out in jordan between anti-government protesters and supporters of the cane. -- of the king abdullah. some protesters have called for the downfall of king abdullah. >>> two former croatian generals have been cleared of war crimes committed during the 1990's. they were given a rousing welcome. an appeals court in the hague ruled there w
to the u.n., came up a lot today. >> that story has really got a lot of traction. one republican alleging that president, quote, intentionally misinformed the american people about the attack and now he wants to promote ambassador rice, who said the attack was not premeditated terrorism, but spontaneous. >> president obama has the gall to float the name as possible secretary of state, the name of the person who is the actual vehicle used to misinform the american people during this crisis. >> democrats defended rice, adding the u.n. ambassador got her information from the c.i.a. and other agencies. >> these unfair attacks on ambassador susan rice are simply wrong. she had to rely on the intelligence that was provided. i sat here while colin powell provided the intelligence that he had regarding weapons of mass destruction in iraq. >> this is a critical point. who finalized these talking points for ambassador rice and what was clear in the testimony today is that it was a real flash point between lawmakers and the intelligence community who could not say who ultimately signed off on those
controversial coming out of these briefings, whether or not susan rice, the u.n. ambassador -- the u.s. ambassador to the u.n., had the proper information or was correct in what she said publicly about the attack being probably at that point four days after the attack because of a demonstration. democrats are really to a person coming to her defense aggressively and trying to explain why there was a discrepancy. listen to kent conrad of the democratic member of the senate health care community. >> what is very clear is that ambassador rice used the talking points that the intelligence committee had all signed off on. that is very, very clear. she used the unclassified talking points that were signed off on by the entire intelligence community, so criticisms of her are completely unwarranted. that is very clear. >> and susan, dianne feinstein, just moments ago actually took out and read the unclassified talking points that susan rice used on that day, and they were very short. it sounds like there were two, maybe three points in the talking points, and it was almost certain to change.
politically charged controversy is over u.n. ambassador susan rice's comments five days after the attack. why she blamed it on benghazi demonstrations, officials now say didn't even happen. and why she didn't mention terrorist forces? intelligence officials now believe actually targeted the u.s. consulate there. democrats emerge saying the answer was simple, she was using these unclassified cia talking points which omitted mention of extremist elements because it was still classified and could have compromised intelligence sources. >> she used the unclassified talking points that were signed off on by the entire intelligence community, so criticisms of her are completely unwarranted. >> reporter: democrats accuse republicans of unnecessarily assassinating rice's character. >> to select ambassador rice because she used an unclassified talking point, to say that she is unqualified to be secretary of state i think is a mistake. >> reporter: but republicans say the problem is rice freelanced. >> she went beyond that. and she even mentioned that under the leadership of barack obama we have decimat
,000 israeli troops. in what is being called preparation for a likely ground invasion of gaza. the u.n. called on both sides to back down. megyn: earlier today for the first time since 1970, at least two rockets, the first time since 1970. at least two rockets were fired at jerusalem, landing in an open area south of the city. no casualties reported so far. [sirens sounding] megyn: air raid sirens sounding in tel aviv since the first time in 1991 during the gulf war. nearly 300,000 americans live in israel. jerusalem and tel aviv make up an area of the size of dallas, texas, with 1.5 million people. the u.s. embassy is located in tel aviv. israel's iron dong missile system is striking back. firing on more than 500 targets approximate intercepting more than 100 hamas rockets. we will have won the story, including an interview with the israeli ambassador to the united nations. but first, another alert on another major developing story today. testimony earlier today from former cia director general david interests behind closed doors on capitol hill. according to lawmakers who were present, gener
the agency threw a lifeline, if you will, to embattled obama u.n. ambassador susan rice, corroborating ambassador rice's account of what she knew and when she knew it, even though we know now that what she was told and what she repeated was wrong about benghazi. libya remains highly political, partisan and even personal. libya's become a battle between president obama and republican senator ginnie mae who insisted again today the administration knew quickly that al qaeda had attacked. >> and for the president of the united states for two weeks afterwards to deny that that was the case is either a cover-up or it is incompetence. >> reporter: obama u.n. ambassador susan rice denied it, infuriating republicans. mike morrell on the hill today briefed some lawmakers on libya. one, a democrat said the account backed rice, that u.s. intelligence did give her the incorrect account that she passed on. >> this was a spontaneous protest that evolved into something militant, that was the best information they said they had at the time. >> reporter: there had been earlier attacks in benghazi, a war
of national intelligence and that petraeus apparently did not know they would be provided to u.n. ambassador susan rice. he does not know who the author of the final version was and these talking points would be uses as the basis for the statements on sunday talk shows on september 16th that this was spontaneous event and linked to the anti-islam video. lawmakers said they wanted to stay very focused on the attack itself and not the former director's personal problems. >> human nature is what it is but the intent going we'll limit the conversation to the events of 9/11 and forward throughout the rest of the, six, eight weeks ensued since the attacks on our consulate. >> reporter: in addition to what's unfolding here on capitol hill fox news separately has confirmed the cia has begun a preliminary investigation into the former director's tenure at the cia. that would include whether any cia assets or materials if you will were used to facilitate this affair or alleged affair with his biographer, paula broadwell, bill. bill: a lot of people look at this on the outside and look at today as a da

. most closed to the public, but one was open. and much of the focus is on u.s. ambassador to the u.n. susan rice, who back in september appeared on five sunday morning talk shows with the same talking points, the attacks she said appear to be the work of protestors, not terrorists as it now appears. the implication at the height of campaign season, the president did not want to be responsible for a terrorist attack. >> the arrogance and dishonesty reflected in all of this is breathtaking. >> these unfair attacks on r susan rice are simply wrong. she had to rely on the intelligence that was provided. >> reporter: the hearings this morning begin after dawn, that is very unusual here in washington. it's possible we may not even catch a glimpse of david petraeus. in washington, doug luzader, fox news. >>> we're just getting reports of an explosion in israel's biggest city after air raid sirens went off. another rocket was fired from gaza this morning sending people running for bomb shelters in tel aviv. 500 rockets rained down on israel in wednesda
. other point that was clear and i asked the general about this, with respect to the u.n. ambassador, whether she was operating in a precise talking point or not and i asked the general were the talking points we got, that you ultimately signed off open, were they an accurate assessment of the best information at the time that protected classified information and he said "cre." i asked, to the degree that the ambassador's remarks reflected those talking points and if you look and compare them, they are almost identical, was she giving us the best intelligence estimate at the time and his answer was "yes." >>trace: but is that accurate? how is it that protecting classified information turns out to be something where ambassador rice goes on to the five sunday shows and if she is protecting classified information, how do you turn that around where she delivers inaccurate information to the entire country? at that time the information she gave was inaccurate. >>guest: well, the best intelligence the community gave us and gave the ambassador was wrong and the general admitted it was wrong
that is living in a very dire situation. the u.n. has decided to shut all of these schools tomorrow as well as the ministry of education, higher education call for the university to not open tomorrow. gaza announced the need for medical supplies. i was speaking to a number of doctors in gaza city and are in bad need for 192 types of medicines that are not available in the stocks of the ministry of health or the hospitals. there is the need for 450 items of medical supplies, or what they called disposable medical items. if these needs are not met by the next day or two, there will be a big humanitarian crisis in the gaza strip. the situation is deteriorating. the targets are the civilians. the last one was a 10-month-old baby child who was killed by any israeli missile. the missiles are falling as i speak to you. breaking news coming out from the medical crew next to me, the f-16's are targeting the beach camp in the east of gaza city at the moment. are targeting-16's the beach camp in the west of gaza city at the moment. that is breaking news that is happening as we speak. >> mohammed omer,
off suspects. u.n. ambassador susan rice used the edited version in remarks five days after the attack. some republicans have accused her of downplaying the terror link to avoid hurting the president's re-election bid. but senate intelligence chair dianne feinstein defended rice today. >> we have seen wrong intelligence before. and it all surrounded our going into iraq. and a lot of people were killed based on bad intelligence. so and i don't think that's fair game. i think mission takes-- mistakes get made. >> holman: the benghazi attack killed u.s. ambassador chris stevens and three other americans. in afghanistan, 17 civilians were killed today when their bus set off a roadside bomb. the victims were on their way to a wedding. separately, two nato service members were killed in a roadside bomb attack in the eastern part of the country. there was hopeful talk today about avoiding the "fiscal cliff" after president obama met with congressional leaders at the white house. a series of tax increases and spending cuts will kick in on january 1, unless the two sides can come to agreement.
the fruits of that, those promises and it's really a great thing. >> un, we can't help but think of jfk. when he was elected. >> oh, yeah. >> the issue of catholicism was being debated. that was a big milestone. you being elected as a muslim was another. we have mitt romney as a presidential candidate, a mormon. >> right. >> we look at all of these here. the issue of religion, the wider religious representation that's happening at the moment, does it show it is becoming an issue or is it a nonissue in the voting booth now? >> it's both for different people. there is no doubt about it there are people who write to my office every day decrying the fact that i'm a muslim and there are people, you know, mormons have been subject to discrimination and mitt romney had to deal with some of that but what it really shows is most americans believe in religious tolerance. most people believe in inclusion. but there is a vocal minority who always lets us know they are there trying to buy people on the basis of religion. and, unfortunately, we can't ignore them but, fortunately, they don't rule the day. >
is that susan rice who is a u.n. ambassador that went on all the talk shows the sunday after the attack was right based on the testimony that i heard yesterday and what they just heard from david petraeus. listen to democrat adam shif. >> the assessment, the upclassified assessment was there best assessment and that could be provided publicly without compromising sources and methods, and the ambassador's statement tracked that unclassified assessment very precisely. so the ambassador statement provided the information that could be provided without providing classified information. >> david petraeus is still on capitol hill as far as we know. he went from this house meeting here right across this visitors center where we are now underneath the capitol to the senate side where he is testifying and i say we believe because we don't know for sure. they're making every effort to keep him away from the public. no one has seen them. cass kafr us in down here. there are a lot of ways to get around. the people that provided him here and his protection are making sure, at least trying, that we d
again. >> hey, joe. >> you know, susan rice, our u.n. ambassador, has been taking a lot of heat. john mccain, lindsey graham going after her for repeating what the president says was the intel that was available at the time. you're on the committee. can you tell us, was susan rice, from what you know, just repeating what was being told to everybody in washington at the time on what had happened in benghazi? >> well, here's what i think, joe. i think without question, i mean, you know, you've got guys storming a consulate with ak-47s, with rpgs and firing mortars. they knew immediately this was a terrorist attack. there wasn't any question about that. and why the white house didn't come out and say that immediately, i don't know. they tried to soften it somewhat with regard to it was a spontaneous action that stemmed from a protest. there was a question about whether protesters were there. and five days later, susan rice goes on tv and says that not only was it a protest, but it apparently stemmed from this trailer or this movie that had been shown. and very honestly by that point in time
presidential appointment as you and ambassador -- u.n. ambassador. in both of these positions, she has been independent and undeterred by ideology. most recently she advise the president that the united states should go into libya on the side of the rebels. susan rice has more than earned every office and every honor she has received, striving for and achieving top honors in high school academics here in washington as a phi beta kappa graduate of stanford university, as a rhodes scholar, as a ph.d. from oxford, and as a brilliant, tough-minded diplomat. we do not attend to stand by while ambassador rice, who had nothing to do with the tragic benghazi attack or its aftermath, it is made the scapegoat of the tragedy because she relate to the public the only official intelligence that was available to the administration at the time. the rush to judgment against the ambassador is particularly unprofessional and reckless considering that the intelligence irrefutably documents her public remarks. we will not allow a brilliant public servant's record to be mugged to cut off her consideration to be
